Purchase Tour Tickets »


Guests visiting Kauffman Stadium are asked to enjoy the game from the comfort of the seat indicated on their ticket. Please keep in mind that when you stand, you block the view of other guests behind you. It is not the Kansas City Royal's intent to limit guest's enjoyment of the game and we encourage cheering after great plays, but continuous standing in seating areas will not be tolerated.

Standing Room Only Areas

Please note that SRO (Standing Room Only) ticketed guests are permitted to stand on the plaza level concourse behind the fountains, left field corner sections (206 - 208) and the right field corner sections (247 - 249). SRO ticketed guests are asked to stand behind the designated line in the left and right field corners to ensure a comfortable experience for guests with disabilities seating. Please note that chairs are not allowed to be used in the standing room only areas.
